Ship at the bottom right of the map, the ship where 周泰 Zhou Tai is positioned. At the right side of that ship are 2 dead end passages blocked off by ropes.

Head toward the 石兵八陣 stone maze from the 蜀 Shu base entrance. Run at the right corner of the entrance, in between the stone pillar and the mountain side. You need to find a certain spot, so alter your direction slightly if nothing happens after a while. When you find the right spot, the character will move forward into the corner a little bit, after that, keep running forward and you will suddenly find yourself on top of the mountains. [Major Bug at 樊城 Fan Castle - Walk Under Water] Equip Red Hare Saddle. Make sure you choose to play as a character that starts initially on top of the castle walls. Horse can go down stairs, but can't go up stairs, so be careful when trying to achieve this bug. First go down one level to the platform in the middle level. The middle level is where the bridges appear after the flood. From the middle level, go to one of the sides where there are no castle barriers, meaning if you kept running you will drop to the bottom level. Don't drop down. At the edge, face sideways along the side, walk sideways (press L1) slowly to drop off the edge halfway. Halfway meaning you are not standing on the middle level nor on the bottom level, you are standing in the middle of the side of that castle platform. At this point, if you move toward the platform you will return to the middle level, and if you move toward the ground you will drop down to the bottom level. This will take a few tries, if you drop down to the bottom level, restart the stage. Standing in the middle of the side of the wall, wait for the time to reach 5:00.00 for the flood to occur. Now you can move toward the ground to go under the flood water. Make sure you pick a spot where the bridge does not appear with the flood. Clear enemy soldiers around the area so you can wait for the flood undisturbed. When under water, if you go near a bridge or land, you will return to the regular level above water. From the top left and bottom right water exits, you can go to the outside of the castle. [Major Bug at 石亭 Shi Ting (You Ting) - Walk on Mountain & Under Water] Choose to play as a thin character. Equip Red Hare Saddle. Head to the Northwest fort. Along the West mountain side within the fort, there are 2 towers standing relatively close to each other, with a small fence in between the 2 towers. Run at the corner of the small fence and the mountain side from the South. Walk forward and sideways by pressing the guard button (L1) until you find a certain spot and move slightly further into that corner. Move forward after that and you will find yourself on top of the mountain. Head to the river and you can run down the mountain and into the bottom of the river water. [Major Bug at 潼関 Tong Gate - Walk on Mountain and Under Water] Equip Red Hare Saddle. To the North of the bottom left bridge are two civilian houses. Go to the Northern one of the two civilian houses. Run at the mountain side to the North of that civilian house, move left and right until you find the right spot and you will run up the mountain side. [Major Bug at 南蛮 Nan Man - Go Behind Shu 蜀 Base, Snow at 南蛮 Nan Man] Choose to play on 蜀 Shu Kingdom is recommended. Equip Red Hare Saddle. Run at the top left corner outside the fence of the 蜀 Shu base, after you find the spot you will run up the hill and end up behind the 蜀 Shu base. At the Northern edge of the map, around the middle of the edge, slightly to the left, there is a spot where if you stand there, it will start to snow. ----------------------------------------- * Thanks to 無二正次 Muni Masatsuki, Kotaro, and Mild Coffee for their help with information gathering and confirmation.
